Full closure of Malkumba-Coongie Lakes National Park
Published: 06 July 2021
High flow in the Cooper Creek and North West Branch has filled Coongie Lakes and has flooded the swamps through which the access tracks pass through. As a result the park will be closed until 8am 26 August 2021. The tracks are now underwater for several kilometers and very boggy. The situation will be assessed fortnightly until conditions are safe enough to open the park.
